scottb@herald-mail.com Reactions to the voice mail greeting at Jay Frantz work's number vary, but the callers generally hang up knowing something new. Messages left by Frantz, 63, of Mercersburg, Pa., range from historical lessons marking the anniversary of the death of Geronimo to ones informing callers about an event happening that day that they probably didn't even know existed, Frantz said. Among the favorite daily themes he has mentioned are Satisfied Staying Single Day, celebrated three days before Valentine's Day, Squirrel Appreciation Day and Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day. About five years ago, Frantz decided he was tired of leaving a standard voice mail message stating his name and when he would return, he said.

The Board of Education voted 5-0 Tuesday to award the project to the lowest bidder, Cardinal Sound & Communications of Silver Spring, Md., for $29,800, according to an online broadcast of the meeting.

The high school has had to borrow or rent sound equipment for theatrical performances because the existing sound system doesn't reach the entire audience, the documents said.

By STEVEN T. DENNIS Staff Writer The Washington County Commissioners have refused to impose a policy eliminating privacy from county employees' e-mail. County Human Resources Director Alan Davis said the e-mail policy would have made it clear to employees that e-mail should be used only for county business and could be read at any time by their superiors. The policy, which would have clearly stated that all e-mail was the property of the county, was endorsed by County Attorney Richard Douglas.

More and more people are focusing on discretionary spending and trying to find ways to reduce it. No matter what the state of the economy, families and individuals should be cautious about everyday spending and not let money slide between their fingers. By spending less, you can save more -- for emergency reserves; for long-term goals such as retirement or college; for a new piece of furniture or perhaps a summer vacation. Put aside money for things you really want and might otherwise put on the credit card.

I've seen readers riled up over a news story, but I have never witnessed the reader reaction sparked by last week's stories about Bucky the deer. On Thursday, messages about the deer were backing up on my voice mail, but I was having a hard time getting to them because every time I hung up from a Bucky caller, the phone would ring again. Of course, by Thursday, the Bucky saga had been going on for several days and he made his national television debut that morning on the "Today" show.

Editor's note: Ellen Rowland, a Herald-Mail columnist who writes about the North End, plans to undergo bariatric surgery to help her lose weight and regain health. So that others might get a clearer picture of the costs and benefits of the procedure, Rowland offered to write a monthly journal describing the process. This is her second entry. My weight-loss appointment on Oct. 15 was not too exciting, as I have not lost weight or gained. So I guess that is a good thing?
